You know what just pisses me off more than anything right now? The way kids growing up now are completely oblivious to what is going on outside of social media.
Look, cell phones and all this technology didn’t exist prior to you all growing up and people lived their lives just fine. Your incessant need for instant gratification is consuming you, and to top it all off, some of you are completely clueless on how to use it your advantage.
Technology is meant to bring us ahead of the game, but they way i see things now, its making people dumber. Browsing for hours on end, Facebook, twitter, Instagram…all for what? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Are you using these things to make you a better person? Are you using these things to make the world a better place? No? Then ask yourself why WASTE SO MUCH TIME ON IT???
Seriously. Kids nowadays can oovoo and tweet and chat and whatever on the internet, but ask them a simple question about current events or history or even how things work, they can’t tell you a darn thing and better yet, THEY DONT KNOW HOW TO FIND THE ANSWERS!!! IN THIS DAY AND AGE OF GOOGLE, YOURE GONNA SIT THERE AND TELL ME YOU DON’T KNOW????
GIVE. ME. A. BREAK.
And another thing, I am appalled by kids using their cell phones in inappropriate places and situations. Taking selfies/pictures/texting during inappropriate times/places. But whats even more sad is they’re only following what they see from those who are older than them. Monkey see, monkey do. Yes, I am talking about you. And Yes, please stop because people see what you are doing.
I am dead serious when I say this: utilize technology for good. To help better your self. To help make this world a better place. To do good things. Don’t let it consume you. Don’t let it dictate your life. Don’t let it be your downfall.
Share knowledge. Share your faith. Share words of genuine encouragement. Use the ability to spread messages in an instant to help and be constructive.
Stop the self centered living that this world is conforming to. Think of others more than yourself. Think of how to help others instead of what youre gonna wear in your next selfie. And let me tell you, selfies are another gripe i have, but for another time.
Okay, I let it out. Im done…for now.
